    I'm no expert. But look up images of baby cockroaches and compare the legs. Roaches and bed bugs don't have the same back legs for sure.

    Not a pro here. Call me Jon Snow...... for I know nothing, except what I've experienced.

    I hope you don't mind me using your image (if you do, I will remove it) but this is a cockroach nymph.

    You see those two little bits that stick out on the bottom of the insect, visible from top or bottom?

    They are called cerci and is one way you can tell this is not a bed bug. Cockroaches have cerci and bed bugs do not.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."
